The Winner, Plus New Alice in Wonderland & Mermaid Stamp Sets!

Hi Everyone,

I leave today for both the Craft Super Show and the CHA Trade Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, so I’m going to be brief and show mainly pictures, which is the best part! We wish everyone could win but for the first CHA Giveaway for Office 101 and Party Cat Stamps, Random.org picked #184, so Jean is the winner!

Jean said... These are just so much fun!! These would be so much fun to work wit.

Here is our new Greetings in Wonderland stamps! They are a large 6 x 8" set with 27 separate stamps. Available to order after CHA. Artwork is from 3 antique versions of the book with lots of cool changes, new parts and fun words by Cindy van Koll. She even made small hearts to fit on the queen's fan and squeezed in my fav: 'A man's home is his castle' and 'Until the Queen arrives'. Eventually there will be a 'Tea With Alice' stamp set!



Julie Campbell is coming to work in our booth at the shows, so I sent her one of the stamp proofs and she created this fun card. Our DT leader Vicki Chrisman will also be at both shows and managing our make-n-takes.

DT member Michele Kovack created this wonderful card
DT member Marisa Grosson designed this card in with a pretty yellow palette. Love the pearl on her crown and the detail on the watch!

I have 3 samples to show you by Lisa Zappa. I love the way she altered this book and added a Queen of Hearts playing card!


Here is the queen with the knave of hearts and Lisa said she added red Fun Flock to give him a velvet pillow!

Check out the Tweedle Dee & Dum boys on this cute card by Lisa
These are our new Mermaid Clear Art Stamps, a large 6 x 8" set with 20 separate stamps and lots of amazing detail! Leave a comment on this post to be entered to win this set and Greetings from Wonderland. Random winner will be announced Jan 27, 2010



Here is another very pretty card by Julie Campbell using the long mermaid stamp


I love the way DT member Michelle van Etten altered this 3D landscape Shadow Box with an ocean theme and added the mermaid stamps!



Here is another side of Michell's Michele's Shadow Box card

Okay, don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in this giveaway. The next post and giveaway will include a few more surprise stamp sets and a 3D Altered Fairy Shadow Box Kit, designed by Vicki Chrisman!
Wishing you all joy & creativity!

First of all congratulations to Jean, lucky girl! And kudos to the design team for such lovely cards! They are simply amazing! I love, love, love the new Alice stamps and I'm over the moon about the mermaid set. I love both themes and try to collect anything that contains Alice or mermaids. So these are right up my alley. What a fantastic job has been done creating these sets, just beautiful.

Hope CHA is a great success for you Sandy! The Alice set is great fun and I love the mermaids, lots of shimmery possibilities with those and the shells look like they'd coordinate perfectly with the ones in the Seaside set.

Kati Lyon said...

Congrats to Jean. Have a great time at CHA. Both sets are fabulous. The mermaids are my favorite since swimming is the only time I look graceful or at least feel graceful- lol. Someday I may get a small mermaid tatoo. Hey, I could use the stamps to try that out.

The Rambling Papercrafter said...

The new stamps I just love. Both of these sets speak to me.

NanaBeth said...

Talk about bringing back memories of my childhood-wow on both counts. Alice of course being one of the first books I read and being from Miami-all things ocean mean home. I would surely love to have these to play with.

Theresa said...

Wow! I am loving Alice!!! The Queen is too cute! My daughter played The Queen of Hearts in a school production and ever since then, I have been a fan! It would be wonderful to win!!!!

Miriam said...

I love all the new stamp sets, but the Alice in Wonderland set is my favorite. My grandfather was a writer and a collector. In his library was the chair Lewis Carroll sat in while he wrote "Alice in Wonderland" along with Carroll's chaise lounge. My childhood was full of images from the story. This set is a must have for me! How fun to see what you have done with these images! Thanks for the chance to win!

Thanh said...

Lady luck was on your side Jean! Congrats to you and have fun with your new goods!

starqueen said...

Hi Sandy,
These are truly my favorites to date! The Mermaid set is just exquisite...I was swooning over it at the first reveal. Alice in wondeland is a favorite story, and your classic, whimsical artwork is my vision of the characters, too. Thank you for sharing!

Kelly Lynn said...

I LOVE that shadow box with the mermaid! Everything on this blog is just amazing!!

Amy Johnson said...

I absolutely love the new sets. I've noticed all your designers always have the same, heavily, detailed style. Have you ever thought of having some examples of using your images with a CAS Style?

Rene said...
